Built In Quality (BIQ)
BIQ is a diagnostic tool used to evaluate the capability of a process to produce a quality product, usually in an assembly process.
Students will understand the basics of BIQ and learn how to apply BIQ to their manufacturing operations.
BIQ will deliver an efficient, smooth, simple, error-free set of processes capable of “building in” quality to a product. This practice ensures each solution element meets quality standards throughout development.
BIQ focuses on:
- Standardizing work
- Eliminating waste
- Reducing errors
- Reducing technician burden (both physical and mental)
- Smoothing the workflow
- Simplifying the assembly process
